Dirk Nowitzki and Germany: China Bound

Catch video of Dirk Nowitzki here discussing Germany qualifying for Olympic Basketball. A few points stood out for me:

1. He went out of his way to talk about the physical nature of play overseas. That's not how most Americans think of international basketball.

2. Nowitzki said the right things and even said that each team in the qualifying tournament deserved to make the Olympics. Not true.

3. Solid Chris Kaman interview as well.

As a side note I did not see Croatia over Germany coming. That caught me off guard.

Greece and Croatia will be there as well.
